Anxiety & Stress Relief Workshop
with Jade Nelson
In this workshop, we will briefly discuss how stress and anxiety impact the body. You will learn and practice two breathing techniques. A simple self-massage routine with essential oils. As well as two mindfulness skills, and a few trigger points you can use any time of day to help lower anxiety and combat stress. You will leave class with useful tools to care for yourself.

Neuroscientists know life-long learning positively impacts brain health and aging, and that physical activity is as much for the brain as it is for the body. When you combine the two and take up a new physical activity that requires learning, you get a “twofer!” Two for the time of one! Discover why and how as you learn a variety of scarf, toss, and bounce juggling patterns.
Beginners start with a simple step-by-step learning process, and those with more experience will challenge their skills with new patterns. Everyone will walk away having learned a new way to oxygenate, energize, and integrate their brain – anytime and anywhere. Come willing to learn through trial and error, and be prepared for fun and laughter!
